Recently one of my friends joined a direct sales company called Younique. It’s a newer company and they sell products like brushes and mineral makeup like eye shadow, blush, and a slew of other things. Being a makeup fiend she asked me if I would be interested in testing it out and I said sure. Pretty much everyone I know is in a perpetual state of searching for the world’s best lashes and her company has a product called “3D fiber lashes.”  What the heck, send em over.

I have used similar products with Blinc (which I adore) but I was still unsure what to expect. You are likely reading this because you are asking yourself one of the follow questions:

  1. Do Fiber Lashes really work? – Pretty well, although Tubes are another great option and do not come off
  2. Does Younique actually work? – Yes
  3. Do Fiber Lashes stay on? – Mostly
  4. Are there other Fiber Lash options? – Yes
  5. Are 3D Fiber Lashes Waterproof? – No

The Younique kit with the lashes arrived in a case with a “transplanting gel” and a “fiber lash”. This part is important…the transplanting gel is NOT mascara. I made the mistake the first few days I used it in thinking the gel was actually mascara and could not figure out the reason my results were not as strong as the advertisements the company made. Using the gel and lashes alone does work and you can wear it that way, but if you want dramatic lashes, you need to pair it up.

Younique 3D Fiber Lashes

Packaged in two separate bottles, the Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers are used together to enhance and magnify your OWN lashes. Watch your lashes transform into something you only dreamed of! A 300% increase in thickness and volume to your lashes while still looking completely real and natural. Potentially “mood-altering” 3D Fiber lashes will quickly become your favorite makeup accessory!

Then I tested it out with mascara on one eye and a light bulb went off.

(this is why you read instructions on things first kids)

  • Left eye (facing the picture) is transplanting gel + fiber lashes
  • Right eye (facing the picture) is my mascara + the fiber lashes

I think the difference is pretty obvious.

Now that I had it all figured out, I used it today with my normal mascara (I wear Lorac Pro) and added the fiber lashes via the wand (I skipped the transplanting gel)  and the results were great!

Application is simple.

Step 1: Apply your mascara

Step 2: Apply Fiber lashes. They go on like mascara with a wand.

(not my shot, this belongs to the company)

What about Youniques Mineral Makeup?

I also tested small samples of the mineral makeup.

I want to say that this past year I have tended to shy away from mineral makeup. My son has discovered how to take the lids off and let’s just say mineral makeup is VERY VERY messy when a 2 year old gets a hold of it. I quite literally threw away 15 containers of Bare Essentials just a few weeks ago.

I also find that the little dust particles from the minerals fall on my cheeks during eyelid application and I end up cleaning off more than I put on. That being said, if you do love using mineral makeup, it says that their Pigment Powder is 100% natural, free of chemicals, free of talc, oils and preservatives so I suggest giving it a try. At only $10, the investment is very reasonable.

This is me sampling “curious” and “flirty”.

Fiber Lashes, Are they the real thing?


My final thoughts?

I really like them. In the beginning I thought I was gonna come here and tell y’all that they were just alright and not worth the $29 price tag. Now that I realize you have to put on mascara first, I find them to be really pretty, give a wide dramatic look, and they stay on the entire day (just like regular mascara application).  They are water proof but come off easily in the shower and overall a fantastic product to keep in your makeup kit.

I also recommend using Lorac Pro along side them if you like this look, which you can pick up on Amazon or their new Lorac Pro Fiber

What other Companies can I buy Fiber Lashes from?

  2. Lash Factory
  3. The Lash
  4. Mia Adora
  5. L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes 
  6. Vixen Lash

 Commonly asked Younique 3D Lashes Questions

  1. What do Younique 3D Lashes Cost: Currently they are $29 plus shipping. 
  2. Are there any tips to application of them? Some like to use mascara with them, but always make sure they are sealed or they will flake off easier. 
  3. Are 3d Lashes Waterproof? Nope! They will come off. If you want water proof lashes that are similar, google mascara with tubes. These are fibers. 
  4. Will I get a discount if I am a rep for Younique? Sadly no!

    Lost a lot of lashes on kemo. To top it off I have developed “slight” Parkinson’s
    Just my Younique followed direction–2layers and my lashes bushed against my lashes. This is a blessing
    On soc. sec so hoping I didn’t waste my money, I’m thrilled!!! No I wud like to collect some shadows and blush.

  2. Ashley says

    My sister started selling for this company a few weeks ago. Once she got her starter kit she wanted to have me try the 3D Fiber Lash. I am a pretty plain looking woman, and don’t wear much makeup. After following the steps to put it on I absolutely FELL IN LOVE with it. I wear it every day now. I have also expanded into some of their Mineral Pigments and eye liner because I have a hard time with my eye shadow and eye liner not holding up. I have gotten so many compliments and people definitely notice a difference. The lashes are fun and flirty. The eye liner stays on all day ( I have even fallen asleep without taking my makeup off and it still looked flawless in the morning!). At first, I thought this makeup was too expensive and that it wouldn’t do much different than normal products that are readily available at stores, but after a few weeks of wearing it I can tell you that it is worth it and you should try it! But follow the proper steps. If you don’t then you will run into problems with clumping and/or fibers getting on your face.

    Trying to get thick long eye lashes… I’ve been trying forever and just started putting vitamin e on my clean eye lashes every night befor bed I really have been seeing a diffrence.ur eyelashes need to be cleaned and conditioned just like ur hair.

  4. Lety says

    I purchased this product a few days ago & after a few hours the fibers were all over my face, I constantly had to be wiping them off. Not happy with product:(

  5. amy says

    I purchased this recently and am having product flake everywhere. I use the gel first and then the fibers and then gel again. Why is this stuff flaking everywhere. It makes my lashes beautiful and very long but at the end of the day I have black specks on cheeks, under eyes and even on nose. Help please!!

  6. says

    I really wanted to love this product but by the end of the day I have either lashes on my cheeks or the mascara has run. I have even tried putting on my waterproof mascara at the end.
    I first put on my regular mascara, the gel, the 3D lashes, the gel again. Had lashes on my cheeks a few hours later.
    Next time I put on all of the above but then also put on my waterproof mascara at the end, in the hopes that it wouldn’t run, had smudges under my eyes later on that night.
    Really disappointed as I wanted this to work for me Any suggestions?

      My guess is you have too much going on. Try just the gel, then the fiber, then the gel to finish it off and let dry completely. If you prefer to use your mascara, do mascara, fiber, and then gel to seal it. With your extra mascara, gel AND lashes its possibly weighing you down too much.

  7. says

    I can’t tell when you posted this, but I’m wondering how long one $29 tube lasts if you apply it daily. Have you been using it daily? If so, how long did the tube last (or how long has it lasted you so far)? Thanks!!

    • says

      I published this article in October last year and am still personally using the same tube. I use it every time I wear mascara, but I dont wear mascara every day..a few times a week.
